Ayesha Curry is Being Sued for $10mil
NBA player, Stef Curry’s wife Ayesha Curry I would say is a celebrity in her own right. She has a cook book and definitely a huge social media presence with 7.3mil instagram followers and is a model and great momma. I’m a fan because she seems to live a very positive lifestyle. Well, she’s getting sued for more than $10mil by a celebrity branding company which claims they built her into a household name and then she ditched them when the money came rollin. Robert Flutie of Flutie Entertainment (not to be confused with Boston College Legend Doug Flutie), says that the two of them signed an agreement in 2014, 5 years after Stef was drafted to Golden State and it was Flutie who says that his company helped Ayesha realize her vision and dreams with cookbooks and tv shows and consumer products. According to the lawsuit everything was going fine until she fired him in May 2019 and left him out of the profits. So now he wants $10mil plus 50% of the production company she owns where she does all of her TV projects.
